In her first solo Billboard cover story, Camila Cabello is once again discussing what went on with Fifth Harmony that may have led to her move towards a solo career. “You have to follow and honor that inner voice. I always encouraged the girls to do the same,” the singer says. It may have been that urge that “rocked the boat” on the group’s ongoing tension.

Nicki Minaj said hi and bye to Taylor Swift as she passed her in the race towards an Aretha Franklin-level milestone. Nicki’s new song, “Run Up,” has entered the Billboard Hot 100, putting her one single ahead of Taylor in the list of most Hot 100 entries by a female artist. At 71, Nicki is now just two Hot 100 songs behind Aretha’s record.
Nicki took to Instagram for a humble brag about her new number. She had a special shoutout for Taylor in her caption, sending some love to her fellow Sagittarius. Taylor is now a song behind Nicki but still only three songs behind Aretha, who sits at number ten all time for Hot 100 appearances. Hopefully, Lena Dunham won’t feel the urge to offer her opinion on the news.
Check out Nicki’s Instagram post below.

If you haven’t heard by now, Demi Lovato has been nominated for her first Grammy award. The singer is up against some stiff competition like Adele and Ariana Grande, so her chances of actually winning are slim. That hasn’t stopped her from talking about her nom every chance she gets.
In a new video shared by Billboard, Demi is still talking about her nomination and what happened the morning the announcements were made. “The way that I found out was getting a phone call really early in the morning and my assistant came in and said ‘Phil has to talk to you,” Demi said. After learning of the nomination it seems as if Demi, like everyone else, couldn’t believe “Confident” was up for “Best Pop Vocal Album” either. “I literally shot up and said ‘Shut the f*ck up,'” she added.
